Mike Whitney - Cricket Legend
Fast bowler Michael Whitney was a favourite among Australian and NSW cricket fans for both his sense of humour and whole-hearted approach to the game. He made his Test debut in 1981 at Old Trafford against England, when he was called on by the Australian touring party due to injuries while playing for Gloucestershire. However, he was then overlooked for six years afterwards and played almost all of his matches for Australia in the late 1980s and early '90s. He was Australia's most economical bowler in the 1992 World Cup and in the same season took 17 wickets in three Tests against India.
